Steep Learning curve
This is only for the hardcore gamer. It is a beautifully designed game as are all the Total War series, but has the typical learning curve associated with the series.
I have played it a number of times and cannot get very far before being wiped out. THe combination of diplomacy, mastery of sea/navy and mastery of arts always defeats me.
Hours of playing time involved also which can be a plus or minus depending on your POV.
I have played the ACW and ROME Total War series also. Found the Rome one to be the least involved as far as learning curve. The ACW one had a convulted chain of command and never really worked for me.
Don’t fix what isn’t broken!
After this latest update, the game has gotten rather laggy when attempting to use the same settings I’ve always had, and takes 5 times as long to even start up the application. And then when I try to turn off the game for any reason, it locks up on a black screen with my cursor turning into an hourglass. I had to reset the computer to actually turn it off, for it was STILL trying to turn off after EIGHT hours! We already had settings for graphics, there isn’t a point to upgrading them! As the title says, quit trying to fix things that aren’t broken, and that doesn’t apply to just this game. (I’m looking at you and your updates for ANYTHING, Apple Inc.!)
Crash after crash after crash.
I have used Feral before on the Mac for Rome and Empire and have had no problems what so ever. Unfortunately with Shogun 2, I am hard pressed to get through an entire turn without it abruptly crashing for no apparent reason. It can happen on the map, after a battle, it makes no difference. I understand games can have issues and computer set ups can be different. But after emailing Feral’s support team and leaving voicemails, I have recieved no response. Its been a few days and there has been nothing. From what I have played, the game is excellent as Total War games are, but this is unplayable and if nothing can be done I want my money back.
